New cheaper Luxurylite frame pack on 07/08/2005 11:53:01 MDT Print View

Looks like a much more affordable (but heavier, all aluminum with nylon bags) version is out.

I'm tempted. Anyone got/seen/used one of these "Neotrekk" packs?

$157 ea shipped in blocks of 5 or
$210 individually. How about a split so everybody saves $50?

Todd -
I'm fairly new to backpacking LIGHT - after 28 yers in the Army hauling around a 35-pound ruck. I read the reviews of the Luxurylite the other month and am intrigued with it - simply didn't want to pay close to $450 for the upscale model.
I'd be interested in picking up the Neotekk version. Now, are there 3 others who are interested?
I'm also curious if anyone out there has used either version of the Luxurylite - and their opinions of it.

I'm seriously interested in light frame packs. Was about to build one with some of Bill Fornshell's amazing ideas. The luxurylite product is easily worth the $200 to me to see what he's got and to modify it if necessary for my needs. Time is money, after all.

I'll be ordering end of the week unless a crew signs up to split a bundle.

Best, Todd in CC.

Look for messages from 'Medicine Man' on www.whiteblaze.net. I think he owns one of everything (pack, pillow, cot, etc.) from LuxaryLite.

I, also, think their is a good write-up on this site as well. Pack wobble was my biggest concern, and the bpl.com reviewer actually had that issue on his "cons" list. Otherwise, is "sounds" like a great pack.
